In any event, stop all deodorant, etc and maybe put some hydrocortisone cream on it and if that doesn't help, see your doc ...Read more

Doctor can check: It can be hard to describe exactly where one's pain is, how the lumps feel, and where the lumps are.

If so, after pooping everything out (taking a laxative if needed), the lumps should be gone. A doctor can evaluate, if the lumps remain. ...Read more
